Continental silver is a very broad term, but we'll use it here to describe this lovely 800 hallmarked snuff box. The design looks very eastern European, even Middle Eastern to certain extent. The construction is stamped, folded and soldered and the piece is quite skillfully hand made. It is in excellent condition with no major dents or damages, and closes very securely. The pattern is quite elaborate and beautiful. Heavy! Would work well as a gentleman's or ladies pill box - still eminently useful! Circa 1900.
